Gospel superstars Israel Houghton, Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin and Marvin Sapp have teamed up with Live Nation to tour as The King’s Men.
It’s the first major gospel venture for the company, known for promoting rock and pop concerts.
Israel Houghton, one of the leading figures in the “praise and worship” sub-genre of African American gospel music, begins the down-tempo song without additional accompaniment before his five-man band and five backup vocalists, collectively known as New Breed.
Houghton, who works as a worship leader at prominent televangelist Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston.He took a moment out of the busy schedule to share some special words.
“In the Gospel world, this is like Springsteen, McCartney, Prince and Elton hitting the road together,” said Kevin Morrow, Senior Vice President of Touring at Live Nation, in a statement. “It’s going to be a once in a lifetime event for music fans.”
